Resolving the blackhole information paradox by treating time on an equal footing with space
Abstract
Pure states in quantum field theory can be represented by manyfingered blocktime wave functions, which treat time on an equal footing with space and make the notions of “time evolution” and “state at a given time” fundamentally irrelevant. Instead of information destruction resulting from an attempt to use a “state at a given time” to describe semiclassical blackhole evaporation, the full manyfingered blocktime wave function of the universe conserves information by describing the correlations of outgoing Hawking particles in the future with ingoing Hawking particles in the past.
